COMMITTED MADAGASCAR TOURS
We have chosen to limit our groups to 20 people for Madagascar tours in order to disturb the environment as little as possible. Community based tours are even more limited to guarantee the quality of interpretation and unspoiled hospitality.
We do not leave any signs of our presence and we take our rubbish home. We use gas instead of wood in order not to contribute to deforestation.
We reject any business which damages the environment by asking our guests not to buy any items made from protected species, including crocodile skin, turtle shells, sea shells, coral and butterflies.
We answer your request fast thanks to our partners (hotels, car rentals, guides…) who we have been working with for many years now for the best travel Madagascar. We are also investing in the most efficient fibre optic communications, to keep in touch with the world and you.
We train our team to keep them up to date, by sending them to evaluate tours at least once a year. This way, they can see by themselves what has changed, positively or negatively, on a specific tour and advise you. They are taking English lessons weekly to better serve you.
We actively participate in the development of eco-tourism in partnership with Madagascar National Parks, National Tourism Board, ONE (National Organization for the Environment), WWF, and Go To Madagascar association.
During Madagascar Tours, we use local products that are ecologically sustainable on our campsites.
We respect cultural assets by working with the local communities involved.
By respecting those basic principles, we think we contribute to the preservation of our magnificent natural environment, and it is our pleasure to share it with our guests. We also support local communities through several school projects.
We use the services of local providers that are ethical in business, wherever they work with us. We comply to Malagasy labour laws for all our staff.
We encourage our guests to buy only locally made handcrafts and use locally-owned hotels as much as possible.
